Mike Godwin worked as the first staff counsel of the EFF and served as general counsel for the Wikimedia Foundation. He has been a contributing editor of Reason
magazine and was elected to the Open Source Initiative
board in 2011. Mike is probably best known however for coining the internet adage Godwin's Law
. He is currently general counsel and director of innovation policy at the R Street Institute
. Mike has given us some of his time to answer any questions you may have. As usual, ask as many as you'd like
, but please, one question (and one comparison involving Nazis or Hitler) per post.
